Transcription of XRN2 and IFIT3 mRNA is induced during RSV infection. HEp2 cells were infected with RSV or left uninfected (-) for indicated durations. Total RNA extracts were reverse transcribed and analyzed by qRT-PCR. Specific RNA expression levels were measured for IFIT3 and XRN2 and normalized to β-actin mRNA expression levels. Numbers above horizontal bars indicate n-fold change of the RNA expression level detected in infected cells relative to mock-infected cells.
